Fic: Decisions  
Title: Decisions
Characters: Angel
Rating: PG
Prompt: Written for the prompt "box" at open_on_sunday
Note: ATS S1

He’s never done this before. Then again, he’s never had anyone close to him. There were so many choices that it made his head spin. From linings to padding to even what it was made out of. His fingers ran over the collection of handles lined up against the wall. He should have brought Cordelia, she was good at making sure that things matched. But she was too distraught, eyes still red and haunted by that last kiss. In his day, a simple pine box was good enough. But now?

What kind of coffin do you get for a hero?

Oh that is weird, I didn't even intend it that way but reading it now, I can totally see it.

I actually meant for it to be Angel picking out Doyle's coffin. I didn't want to use his name or Doyle's name, for more impact.

That is the great thing about art though, people can see the same thing and totally see different things, different than what the artist intended. I love that. :)

This made my heart hurt. The image you've provoked is so poignant, and just...gah. Memed it.

Thank you so very much! It is such a great compliment to be able to get such an emotional response in such few words. I really appreciate it.
